Existential coaching is a uniquely philosophical and deeply relational way of examining the paradoxes and challenges of human existence so as to empower clients to move forward in an authentic and reflective way.
Drawing on psychotherapeutic literature and on existential philosophy, we teach coaches to work in a holistic way, engaging with the unique world of each client. Existential coaches encourage clients to look at issues such as meaning, authenticity, freedom, choice and responsibility, and how these come into play in their lives. Our trainees learn how to handle emotion in the coaching relationship. We encourage all trainees to go much further than applying coaching frameworks or tools. The MA in Existential Coaching is a joint programme between NSPC and Middlesex University, leading to an MA awarded by MIddlesex University.
The final dissertation will include a discursive, philosophical element and the research will usually be based on phenomenological enquiry. Research training is provided throughout the course and you will have supervision from the second year onwards by an experienced academic. The dissertation is 15,000 words in length.
